Glenda’s 100th Random Amusing Challenge!

This week Glenda is celebrating her 100th Amusing Challenge and she has asked a bunch of her buddies (including lots of us from the old A Muse team) to play along in a blog hop of sorts. There’s lots of great cards to see, so scroll down below my card to see everyone’s creations!

Glenda’s 100th Challenge is: Use red on your card or project.  Use as much or as little as you like. Incorporate it by using paper, ink, ribbon, embellishments, whatever you like! It’s that simple!  You must play along with the challenge to be eligible to win the blog candy.  If you play along, please leave a comment on Glenda’s blog and link back to her post from your post.  If you upload to an online gallery, please use the keyword GRAC100.  You have until midnight Pacific Time on January 23rd to play along and you can play along as many times as you like.  The winner will be randomly chosen and announced on January 24th. Have fun!


I’m trying to make 10 Christmas cards per month this year so that I don’t feel too overwhelmed when November rolls around. Here’s my design for January, which was super easy because the music notes, cardinal and sentiment are all ONE stamp! I stamped it once in black and once in red so I could cut out the red cardinal and layer over the existing black one with pop dots.

It’s 2011 already and I’m embracing it completely. I am looking forward to lots of exciting changes both personally and professionally. The major change at work is that we will no longer be selling A Muse stamps; they are no longer selling wholesale to retailers and have dissolved their Instructor program. We all loved A Muse at The Paperie and although I won’t be teaching any A Muse classes anymore, I will continue to teach at least one monthly card making class and who knows what else!

I’m extra excited to see Jenn Shurkus again – she will be coming up to Newfoundland in April to teach some wicked fun classes at The Paperie. Jenn is on the Creative Imaginations design team, Copic Certified, Ranger Certified and was the most successful instructor from the A Muse Instructor program. This girl has got teaching down to a science and we can’t wait to see her in action.

Looking forward to making new discoveries in 2011!
